Nepal today has become a popular tourist attraction that attracts tourists all over the world. However, in remote areas of the Himalayas of this country there are still strange customs such as the sharing of wives among men.
Understanding and exploring the cultures and customs of people all over the world will be surprised when you continue to share the wife of Nepalese men in the Himalayas. Accordingly, the men here can share their wives with other men without any jams or jealousy. What a strange and somewhat weird custom, isn’t it?
The custom of sharing Nepalese wives still exists in remote villages in the Himalayas. The cause of this practice stems from the fact that the mountains in the Himalayas have a small amount of land to cultivate, and families with many sons cannot have much land to share with their sons when they mature and take wife.
The only solution is that the boys in the same family will share a wife, so they will not have to share the family’s land but can live together and work on the same land.
Usually, in a family with many sons, the first adults on will be chosen for a bride to marry, and the later siblings will also marry the wife their brother married. In many cases, it is wives who nurture their future husbands.
The custom of sharing Nepalese wives does not lead to any jealousy or jealousy between husband and wife. Husbands respect their wives and perform family tasks such as cooking, washing and taking care of their children. Women will take care of their family’s money.
Pema – a family husband with many brothers who married a wife in Nepal said, if the brothers stay at home at the same time, the eldest brother will sleep with their common wife. Pema also said that he did not feel jealous or bad when his brother slept with his wife. Because there are many men living with a wife, the children born in these families do not know who their father is. Therefore, they will call the father, uncle, and father.
With Nepalese people in the Himalayas, they consider sharing a wife among men to be quite beneficial and natural, because a woman can be pregnant many times despite how many husbands they have. well. Along with that, the men will assign labor together to bring more economic value to the family. In addition, marriage, with many men, is considered an insurance for women. When a husband dies, they will not be widowed.
The practice of sharing a wife in Nepal still exists. However, with the development of the tourism industry, the lands in the Himalayas were illuminated by civilized light. The people here have been able to interact with the outside world more and their polygamy now has a decline.
According to many experts, in the next few generations, the sharing of Nepalese wives may disappear completely, when the awareness of the people here is increased and they are exposed to outside civilization more and more.
